Subject: Not too shabby
sure, probably was a good show but as the note states, the recording becomes more noise than music by the second set, sadly
had to knock the rating down for that
Subject: Shaky Friend of the Devil
Subject: It was a very strange year
Brent is unbelievable on this version. The rest of the band just feeds off him. Jerry's fine vocals cause Brent to chill a bit for the second verse after the instrumental section, and the drummers step up nicely, and it finishes with everybody on board.
The only version of Rooster I ever dug (sort of) is Springfield 85. The Bird Song here has a fairly interesting jam starting around 6:00 in. Phil shows up early on with a descending line that gets things headed in the right direction.
There is some nice cowbell in this version of BIODTL. I'm serious. If you like cowbell, you will like this version of BIOTDL. A lot. Me, I like cowbell. I laughed when I heard this and it sounds like the audience had a great time, too. Every bit of the energy is carried into Cumberland. Just before the second verse you can hear Bobby reminding everyone of the lyrics. Hotter than fk, truly.
Depending on your tolerance and dosage levels, you could probably find something further on worth a close listen. On this night, I could not be bothered.
Subject: Jerry and Brent !
I had floor seats thanks to a HS classmate who went to Lehigh. Jerry and Brent seemed really in sync that night. All in all - a great show and this recording is excellent !
Subject: The bus came by and I got on.........
Subject: Playing in the BLAND
Subject: IT HAD TO BE 150 DEGREES INSIDE
Subject: It's true--Better than Charlie says it is.
As for the show I can only say do NOT pass this up. The Scarlet>Fire is an explorer's dream...the transition jam floats into spaces most S>F's fail to go, and the touch-down into Fire is terrific. Jerry flubs the first line of Fire (what else is new) but after that I'll put up this FIRE against ANY that exists anywhere. Seriously.
Great TMNS, fantastic BIRDSONG, ALTHEA and a simply kick ass SAMPSON that features Brent going ballistic with funky, punchy fills in time w/Jerry's blazing guitar work.
It's also a Loooooong show, with an amazing post-drums finish featuring one of the better SUGAR MAG-SSDD sandwiches you're likely to hear anywhere. And did I mention the BLACK PETER is to die for? (lousy play on words, my apologies, but it's true.)
Be a little more forgiving on some sound issues and you won't be disappointed. A truly great underrated show from a likewise year.
Subject: Not so fast Charlie...
-- The only reason I am circulating this is because I was asked to"
Not so sure I agree with that Charlie. While maybe not the best SBD out there, it certaily doesn't suck (IMHO) and is at least a bit of an improvement over what was out there. I love the show, great energetic performace start to finsh with some outstanding moments. TMNS is one of my favorite versions out there, the Scarlet>Fire is not overly long, but jammed full of power, and the Post-Space run is incredible. OK, maybe not the best sound in the world, but when combined with the quality of the show itself, how can you complain? I've heard much worse SBD's out there.
Should really be a 4.5. 4 for recording, 5 for performance.
